So i attempted to remove my rt front spoiler tonight but like many i could not get the center to break loose. I hear there are 2 hidden bolts or clips. Where are the and howdo you get to them??? Pics would be awesome. I want to do this without pulling front off.

have you tried looking at the video from speedys garage yet? I know the r/t on there is an earlier model and not sure if they come off the same way or not. I have a 2010 and on mine I had to push in then pull out to get it to break looses. And the bolts are a pain in the *$($ to get to under there.

Can someone please explain to me (that says they have done this without taking the front facia off) after you take off the belly pan, the 3 total clips and 4 rivets off the side, the 7 screws off the spoiler and the clips used to screw into and the 3 screws that are not in most explainations plus the 2 rivets that are on the bottom of the rt front spoiler....what still holds the center on the spoiler so tight to the car???? If i open the hood and go in from the top will I be able to see what else i need to remove???

The center of the spoiler is held in place with the lower grill. The lower grill has several tabs that lock it into the urethane front cover. The tabs need to be lifted to release them from the urethane cover. Start from one side of the grill and work your way to the other side while pressing the grill in. Once the lower is released the spoiler will be released also. Hope this helps.

Dude you will find this to be the biggest pain in your ass. I almost cracked by bumper cover trying to get thing off. The plastic clips in the middle break VERY easily so don't be surprised if you bend or snap one. That video from speedy's garage is literally NO HELP at all on the newer models. You have to pull the bumper cover WAAYYYY forward and push the spoiler WAYYYY back at the same time to clear the clips. GOOD LUCK.
